Payment Processor Integration

What is a Payment Processor or Merchant Account and why do I need one

A payment processor allows you to accept and charge credit cards. Any business that needs to charge credit cards need to have a payment processor. You may already have a payment processor if you accept credit cards in your business.

The greatest advantage of Ticketor is that you collect the sales money directly through your own payment processor / PayPal. It means that you will have access to your money directly and as tickets sell (before the event). Depending on your bank and payment processor settings, the funds from each sale will be available in your account in few business days after each sale.

Please note that personal or business bank accounts, are not able to process credit cards. So you need a payment processor to charge the credit cards and deposit the money to your bank account.

If you don't have a payment processor, or your payment processor is not compatible or cannot be used for online transactions, you can simply get a payment processor in few minutes and use it right away.

Simply go to Control Panel > Account & Settings > Payment Processor, then click on the blue "Connect or get a Stripe Account". It will take you to Stripe.com. Fill out the form and as soon as you are done, you will be ready to charge credit cards and accept payments. It shouldn't take more than few minutes.

If you already have a merchant account that can process online transactions you can most probably use your own payment processor.

If your payment processor is not in the list of supported payment processors below, you may still be able to use it. Most payment processors are compatible with Authorize.net gateway. Contact your payment processor and ask them to set up an Authorize.net gateway for you. However, remember that it may be cheaper and faster to get a new Stripe account instead.

Ticketor is compatible with the following options:

  • Stripe: Stripe is an easy-to-get payment processor that is available in many countries around the world (including US, Canada, UK, Europe, Australia, ...) and in different currencies. They offer immediate, online approval at no monthly and setup fee. Using Stripe, you can sell tickets internationally in over 130 currencies. Check for supported currencies here
  • Braintree: Braintree offers service in a lot of countries around the world (US, Canada, Europe, Australia, ...) and in different currencies. Approval and set up may take a few days. They offer service at no monthly or setup fee.
  • Authorize.net: Authorize.net is a gateway that works with most merchant accounts in the US and other countries. No matter where you get your merchant account from, you can ask them for an Authorize.net gateway.
  • PayPal Advanced or Pro with PayFlow: You can sign up for a PayPal Advanced or Pro with PayFlow (US only). These accounts allow you to accept credit card on your own website.
  • CenPos (Bahamas & Caribbean) Users located in Bahamas & Caribbean, can use this payment processor with Authorize.net emulator
  • PayU (India:) Users located in India can use PayU as their payment processor.

Please note that payment processors are not in any way related to Ticketor. The rates and information posted above, may have changed since this document was last updated. Always check with the provider site for latest updates.
